I think HJS point it there is really nothing this moribund program can do to make a splash.

Kevin Willard doesn’t even clear $2m a year? Just hire him please this is not difficult.

Also JC making $1.4 is staggering. In what other profession can you make that kind of money and go 0fer.

what’s the point of a “splash” hire? acc will pay us the same money and it’s not like we’re getting asses back in the seats for ticket sales.

fr leahy will go cheap and we’ll continue to be the team left out of the acc/big10 challenge

I have come to hate this sport as much as you hate all of them. You have free reign to offer top 10 salary. Who do hire?

I’m at a loss as to what I’d do. Only person I can think of is the guy who already will never be fired as Celtics-coach-for-life. Outside of that, might as well go cheap to easily move on when they fail. Note that “cheap” is still more than most everyone outside of Power 5 gets paid.

I’m saying, for my money, it just doesn’t matter. we could reanimate john wooden and no one would notice, because it doesn’t matter. We could hire bob knight and any chairs he threw would only hit empty seats because there won’t be fans there. But it doesn’t matter. We could bring in john calapari and his bag men and rule breaking and it wouldn’t matter. And even, and even if we bring in Brad stevens, in spite of his designation as emperor for life of the Celtics, HAH! Even if we get Brad. Even if under Brad we play so far over our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days. Even if God in Heaven above comes down and points his hand at our side of the court. Even if every man, woman and child held hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter, because all the really good players and fans would still go to dook and carolina cause they've got all the basketball history. It just doesn't matter who we hire. IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER!

I’m largely right there with you. The only hesitation I have is a harkening back to the 90s and Skinner. Back when no one could tell on TV that the upper decks were screaming for Bluto because the audio only picked up was the hiss of EA-posters’ oxygen tanks. BC has been relevant (not in a dozen years) but some history is there.

I think if we could somehow eradicate a coach (who is totally NOT on the hot seat) from his indentured elvii-teddy fingercuff, I could see the nerds showing up to take selfies of themselves attending maskless events. And, if it likely didn’t work, whelp... we tried and can go back to giving mid-major coaches multi-million dollar rewards for being good guys.

This.

Willard has built that program to the point where the Hall has made the tournament in 4 straight years after not being in it since 2005. Not a flashy hire but seems to be just what we need. Hi

Eh. You think any elite players were thinking about going to UVA when Pete Gillen or Dave Leitao were coaching?

Things change based on a good hire.

yes, uva, like Boston college, has no basketball history.

and I think that for comparing gillen and leitao to beeker and mac, you need to write an apology note to each of those uva coaches and their families. I don’t care if you tell them you wear high on jenkem when you wrote that drivel, but you need to say something to them. That’s just wrong, man

And I probably should have left it as “...all the really good looking girls would go out with the guys from dook and uva because they have all the money...” so people that think this program is revivable (or even worth reviving) would see it’s a joke

Even if a guy that goes to the NBA conference finals every year were to be fired, he's not stupid enough to consider this job. This is one of the dumber of the dumb hypothetical coaching hires I've seen here, even dumber than when people fell for the Jay Wright thing.

Umm... leitao is a terrible terrible basketball coach.

And Pete gillen, though a nice guy, couldn’t win shit after he left Xavier.

The point is not comparing basketball histories it’s about reviving a program after a decade plus hole.

Brad Stevens has never proven he can recruit at the ACC level. Why should he be on any hypothetical list?

The only hire that would make BC relevant is someone that would create controversy (like Pitino). It’s not about being relevant. It’s about getting back to winning 20 games a year.

Thanks moj. We have enough gen x posters here I would have thought this a slam dunk. I’m disappointed in this website and it’s posters.

And this is so much a tripper moment and so not a Germans bombing Pearl Harbor moment tedwardo. I’m most disappointed in you...

Meatballs is currently free to stream on HBO max. If you don’t watch this tonight after uva demolishes dook you are a jerk and I hope your parents and grandparents play the pony to someone who is cooler than you while you are still alive to witness it.

We are the c.I.t.’s so pity us...

Zero chance I will ever watch that movie again. Somewhere in the late thousands on classic Gen X movies.

Thinking mediocre is mediocre is hardly bitter. It was Reitman's first effort.

Fair. It’s still better than a fish called Wanda, which no space was recently extolling.

And it’s in the hundreds, not thousands. I’d put it up against the goonies 8 days a week

Fish Called Wanda is a Boomer movie that came out in the 80s. Like the other Kline one that made Three Dog Night relevant again.

Goonies is far superior to Meatballs. I am not familiar with Goodies.

Yes, the hot CIT did a soft core movie based on Alice in wonderland. Another point for meatballs.
